The last few months have seen many of our colleagues thrown out of work as the economic crisis begins to take its toll on working men and women all over the world. The truly unfortunate thing is that these people had absolutely no way of taking positive action to correct this situation.
But, there are jobs out there for us. Have no doubt. Reliability is embeded in many asset-centric organizations these days as a strategic advantage, and there is a demand for professionals.
So, with that in mind, I am relaunching my job board for reliability and maintenance profesisonals in the USA. (www.thebrilliantcareer.com)
If you are a recruiter, or a company looking for reliability and maintenance resources in the USA, then you can post your jobs on this site at absolutely no cost at all!
Just use the code 3monthfree and you can post all the jobs you want, with no charge.
If you are looking for work, then subscribe to the newsletter and you will receive a weekly roundup of all of the latest roles in the database.
Also, you will get a three-part series on "Street Smart Job Hunting," a short series of e-mails I have written based on my experience in over 60 jobs during the past 25 years.
Hopefully this will allow me to give a little back to the industry that has helped me so much over the past quarter of a century.
Some quick tips:
- The best time to look for work is when you don't need to. No rush, little pressure, all upside.
- Be prepared to travel or relocate for the next role
- Make sure you pitch right. They aren't giving you a job; you are providing them access to unique value.
All the best. I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any good fortune, please.
